The First Ten Years is a series of 10 CDs and double 12" singles by British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, released between 24 February and 28 April 1990, in commemoration of the band's ten-year recording anniversary.[1]

Each CD/double 12" contains two singles, complete with original B-sides and artwork, as well as an edition of "Listen with Nicko", a spoken-word track in which drummer Nicko McBrain would recount the history behind each song specific to that release.[1] Each part in the series included a special voucher, all ten of which could be exchanged by mail order for a limited edition storage box.[2]

Iron Maiden also released The First Ten Years: The Videos on VHS videotape and laserdisc, containing all 16 of the band's promotional music videos up to and including 1990's "Holy Smoke".[3]
